Rotary Club of Georgetown/ Mayor Jack Scoville gives State of the City talk

Jack Scoville, the Mayor of the City of Georgetown gave a State of the City talk at last Tuesday’s regular meeting of the Rotary Club of Georgetown at Chacon’s Restaurant on the beautiful Winyah Bay.
The Mayor delved into efficiencies that have helped the city come significantly under the budget while improving the accountability and morale of the workforce.
Major works have improved the lives of citizens. From new water mains in Maryville, the Ben Cooper kids park in the West End, and rehabilitation of East Bay Park, which when complete will have new tennis courts and walking trails are some of the highlights.
The City has received a deed to the majority of Goat Island which will lead to nature paths and docks for access, as well as to eventual installation of mooring fields for boats in the harbor. At that time, the city will be able to enforce boat mooring rules.
The upcoming meeting between the city and the potential purchaser of the steel mill on 5/10/2017, is an opportunity for a better understanding of the plan for the mill. He believes it is still important to go ahead with the rezoning, allowing the new entity to be grandfathered in as a mill as long as they operate. The Mayor wants to make it clear that they need to hire workers from within the city, as unemployment is high in the West End.

The Rotary Club of Carolina Forest Sunrise will hold a golf tournament on June 2 at Hackler Golf Course at Coastal Carolina University. It is named “Putting for Pupils” because proceeds will be used for the many activities that the Carolina Forest Rotary sponsors to help school children. These include providing shoes, clothing, school supplies and dictionaries to several elementary schools — Carolina Forest, River Oaks, Waccamaw and Ocean Bay.
Tournament awards will be presented for the top three teams in the Men’s, Women’s, and Mixed categories. There will also be awards for Men’s and Women’s Longest Drives and Closest to the Pin.
A Community Clash will also be held for the area communities in and around Carolina Forest.
For details regarding playing or sponsoring a team, contact Dr. Kevin Kristick, Carolina Forest Sunrise, at (843) 236-7383, cvmbghunter@yahoo.com.Putting for Pupils Logo vert Putting for Pupils Flyer

Rotary has Heart Sumter Rotary Submission

The Sumter Rotary Club’s Rotary Has Heart community service project is our Farm-to-Table event.
In this, our fourth year of putting on this event, we sold close to 1,000 tickets for $30 each, and raised more than $20,000 to support 4 charities: The CART Fund (founded by members of our club), 4H, United Ministries, and the Shaw Air Force Base’s Warm Heart Fund. Each of our 80 club members was expected to sell 10 tickets, and most did just that.
The event took months of planning by a committee of 6 senior Rotarians and involved several hundred hours of volunteer work.  The event was heavily promoted in both the local newspaper and radio station–thanks to club members who manage those media outlets.
We had 15 sponsors as well as 12 local restaurants and food producers who donated their wares. This was clearly a whole-community effort.
This project not only helped those in need, and helped improve Rotary’s image in the greater Sumter community, it also provided a fun event for community residents who look for things to do without having to travel to Columbia or elsewhere.

The Rotary Has Heart Project for the St. George Rotary Club is our ongoing backpack buddies program. We pick up food from the Lowcountry Food Bank once a month and deliver that to the individual Interact Clubs (we support 2 Interact clubs). Dorchester Academy has 35 students in its interact club. They usually have 10-12 students that help unload the food and then the juniors (12 students) pack the bags. They pack about 500 bags and deliver them to Williams Memorial Elementary School each month. The administrator there hands out about 125 bags every Friday to the underprivileged students each week so that they will have something substantial to eat over the weekend.

Woodland High School has 50 students in its interact club. They do the same thing as DA but they deliver to Harleyville Elementary School.  They have about 25 regulars that help (rotating from month to month). They pack and deliver 375 bags each month and their administrator hands out about 95 bags each Friday afternoon.
So, in cooperation with the Lowcountry Food Bank, we provide 875 backpacks each month so that underprivileged kids in our area are guaranteed to have something to eat on the weekends!
